I truly enjoy getting to know each of you by reading your current postings, and occasionally your older posts as well. Some of you have become friends that I like “speaking” with on a daily basis…or as often as you post something new! On those inevitable gray days of winter, you have brought smiles to my face, along with the occasional chuckle, snort, LOL and even a few FOTCL (Fall Off The Chair Laughing).
Back when I first started lurking, I spent 2 whole days reading ALL of Susie’s posts …and there were nearly 3 years worth of those wonderful gems! I still consider it time well spent.
There are days when I have spent most of my time in front of the computer — and no, I’m not being paid for it! — meeting new people, stretching my mind and practicing tolerance and compassion.
Of course, I can’t do that every day, and I don’t. Really. But I am finding that my hobbies have been set aside (with one delightful exception — thank you, Tink, for rekindling my love of photography!), my housework neglected, my gym membership unused.
So I think it is time for a little break.
I’ll still check in occasionally, especially with a few folks of whom I’ve become particularly fond, but I need to take a couple of weeks to focus on making my house a HOME and bring some balance back into my life. Moderation in everything, including moderation.
Nooooooooo. Oh fine. I’ll just be waiting right here…
…Have you got any beer?
Hey, wait! We’re just getting to know one another!
Oh, well. Yeah, unused gym cards are no good – a clean home is a must, I understand all that. I did find a way to balance it all, but now that I am no longer working – for some reason… I find it even harder to make time last.
Why is that?
Tink, yes there is that…plenty of that 🙂
R.E.H., I’ve always found I fit stuff in when my schedule was full, but just like Jim Gaffigan says, when all I’ve got to do is go to the Post Office I don’t go ‘cuz I’d have to put on pants!
…Don’t take that TOO literally..although there have been pajama days..
There is that balance issue! Hope to see you back soon.
Thank you for being so kind, always. And I know EXACTLY what you mean about needing to attend to real life. See you around, soon. 🙂
I can relate too. I recently took a hiatus for the same reasons. Enjoy your life, we’ll check in from time to time.
Hope to see you soon!
Have a nice break!!
* giggles * I know exactly how you feel! 🙂 Enjoy your respite! Come back soon though, I’ve just spent some time reading YOUR blog! LOL!
